This morning as I’m guiding Woody and the Jeep back onto the hitch for the thousandth time and when I convey in female hand signals that he’s an umpteenth to the left out and just needs to roll gently forward an inch and move back to the right, in frustration I ask him if he follows my signals … which are:
3 fingers waving backwards (and thumb pointing to left or right as needed) = keep coming
2 fingers waving backwards = getting closer
1 finger waving backwards (like calling a kitten) = real close, go slow
He stares at me in amazement like he’s trying to figure out who I am and says “I only follow Universal Water Ski signs:
Wave upward = go faster
Wave downward = go slower
I’m wondering where the water skis are?
